Koigu's Premium Merino (KPM) are hand painted yarns that continue to set the standard for independent dyers! Located several hours north of Toronto in Chatsworth Ontario, Maie Landry, the creative force behind Koigu, started hand painting yarns in the early 1980s long before artisanal yarns were fashionable. Koigu's signature yarn is known for its rich and vibrant colorways. Koigu is a favorite of ours for blankets, sweaters and whatever other project we can imagine.
